Kindergarten Biedermann

project description

Our nursery was opened in October 2009 in Connewitz, the cultural heart of Leipzig. Many alternative and innovative projects have settled here and they attract young people in particular. The EVS volunteer will support the teachers in the care and supervision of the children in the nurseries and kindergartens during their everyday activities. The volunteer can take on additional responsibilities and services such as:
– influencing the design of the outdoor area, for example building things out of clay with the children, or constructing permanent features
– doing small performances, e.g. Gruffalo Sock Theatre
– help on the educationally disadvantaged projects in the studio, for example, Print Workshop
– exercise programs in the sports room + garden
– nutrition and self-sufficiency environmental project
Our kindergarten is open to any creative ideas and offers help with developing new projects within the kindergarten.


accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteer will live in a host family having his/her own room.
Food money will be paid out to you as well as money to buy the local transportation monthly ticket or you just buy a bike. Leipzig is a very nice city to ride a bike.
